Pennsylvania’s 2020 primary election is scheduled for Tuesday June 2nd and over a million Pennsylvanians have chosen to use mail in or absentee ballots this year and here is some information for anyone thinking of doing the same thing. The deadline to apply for a mail in or absentee ballot is one week before the election which falls on Tuesday March 26th, applications must be filed online or printed and sent to your county election office by 5PM on that date, and before you can apply for mail in or absentee ballot you must of course be a registered voter. If you have a valid Pennsylvania Driver’s license or Photo ID number you can request your absentee ballot online at pavoterservices.pa.gov, if you do not then you will need to print an application and send it to your county election office. If you cannot apply completely online or print out a ballot request you still have the option of requesting a form be sent to you either online, or by contacting your county election office. Remember that you may need to add postage stamps to your application and your ballot when you mail them and finished ballots must arrive at your county election office by 8PM on Election Day.
